My Eyebrow Microblading Experience at Jonelle’s Brows at Bigoudi Salon
I am SO happy with the results! Microblading, a semi-permanent tattoo technique, is perfect for those who want to fully reconstruct, define, or fill-in over plucked brows. Before it begins, a topical numbing cream is applied. I felt only minor discomfort at times & there’s no down time. Jonelle has been in the beauty industry for 20+ years, including the account coordinator/trainer for Anastasia Beverly Hills. She is very easy on the hand – you can always go back and add in what is necessary, but you can’t take away! Jonelle typically charges $400(will be going up to $500 in Jan. 2018), however anyone that mentions my name, she will do for $300! Call 818-448-3805.

“Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue” at the Douglas
Jan. 27th-Feb. 25th
A soldier, like his father and his father’s father, 19-year-old Elliot is back from Iraq with a Purple Heart. As he recovers from his injuries and decides whether to return to Iraq, he yearns for a truer connection with his father and considers his own limited options outside the military. Phoebe Hoban of The New York Times said ‘Elliot, A Soldier’s Fugue’ is that rare and rewarding thing: a theater work that succeeds on every level, while creating something new. The playwright, Quiara Alegría Hudes, combines a lyrical ear with a sophisticated sense of structure to trace the legacy of war through three generations of a Puerto Rican family.
